They went on a visit to Anne Arundel County Animal Control in December 2015, in order that they can donate blankets and supplies but returned home with something extra.

In this trip they made eye-contact with a tragic 17 year old dog named Rocky, and that they just couldn’t leave him behind.

“I saw this gray-faced, skinny dog and that i said to my husband, ‘We’re getting him,’” Beth told Today “I wasn't close to leave that old man to die during a cage.”

“Rocky made our life very complete,” Beth told Today.

“He loved dancing with us and being near us … because the year went on, it got harder for him to climb the steps and continue walks, so my husband would carry him up the steps nightly with great care he could sleep next to us, and rather than walks we just sat outside within the sun together.”

The administrator at Anne Arundel County Animal Control, reported that more and more families are expressing the interest to adopt senior dogs.

“It takes a special family to open their heart and residential to an animal that they'll only get to possess in their lives for a brief period of your time ,” said Robin. “We do our greatest to form the animals as comfortable as possible in our care, however we all know this will never replace a forever home.”

Beth acknowledged she was pregnant and got so happy as she told for Today the more she went into pregnancy the gentle Rocky was behaving towards her, he became an enormous support for the mom to be.

The couple got a singular idea to announce their pregnancy, making Rocky holding a symbol that read, “Mom and pop are becoming me a human!”

But the stunning dog’s health began to fail when Beth reached 7 months pregnant, and that they received the sad news that their lovely furry son may have a tumor.

When Michael and Beth came home with their daughter , the lovable dog sniffed her and put his head next to her, but his health was getting worse and therefore the couple know that they had to let the poor animal go.

“I called a vet which night, he went peacefully together with his family by him,” Beth told Today. “We loved him quite words can describe and that we still have a really hard time adjusting to him not being here.”

The couple believes that Rocky hold on to satisfy his sister, before leaving them.

No, we aren't crying, you are.
